I fail to see how this addresses my comment... All I'm saying is, the
"section 2.1.4.2" number will change so don't quote it in the text but
quote the section *name* instead.

And yet you're doing:

/*
* Check if SEV-SNP is already enabled, this can happen if we are coming from
* kexec boot.
*/
rdmsrl(MSR_AMD64_SYSCFG, val);
if (val & MSR_AMD64_SYSCFG_SNP_EN)
goto skip_enable; <-------- skip zeroing


So which is it?

Yes, now put that in the comment above the

fs_initcall(snp_rmptable_init);

line.

Thx.
